Missing Person Investigations

The Dept collaborated with the Independent Civilian Review into Missing Persons Investigations in 2019-2020 to review how the Toronto Police Services handled missing persons investigations.


For this project, we co-designed and managed community outreach and engagement components of the civilian review of how missing persons investigations were handled by the Toronto Police Services. The Review was prompted by deep concerns about how the TPS conducted investigations into disappearances, particularly in relation to LGTBQ2S+ and vulnerable or marginalized communities. The Review is led by Judge Gloria Epstein, with Lead Counsel Mark Sandler and their final report and recommendations due in January 2021.


Due to COVID-19, engagement activities were moved online in 2020.
